Nyanya Blast: CAN Condemns AttackPosted by African Examiner Featured, Latest News Friday, May 2nd, 2014
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has condemned the Thursday May 1,2014 bomb blast in Nyanya, Abuja.
This was contained in a statement by General Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asake and made available to Journalists on Friday.
Asake said Nigerians must be vigilant at all time because of the insecurity in the country.
According to him, “This calls for more vigilance and caution by all citizens, let us not allow these acts of inhumanity to dampen our spirit of patriotism for our country, let us all rise against this monster. I once again call on those in charge of security to work harder to contain the situation while I call on relief organizations to see to the welfare of the victims”
The statement reads in part, “It is an act that must be condemned by all, no sane person will seek to destroy the lives of fellow compatriots in the name of an ‘ungodly ideology’ of a so-called ‘religious belief.’
“We have always reiterated that terrorists or their sponsors must not be given the opportunity to prevail and CAN hereby uses the opportunity to categorically say that evil cannot overwhelm good while darkness cannot prevail over light. This is a known fact that I want all Nigerians to take to heart in these trying times.
“The recent attack in Nyanya is a clear indication of the terrorists motive to demoralise and destabilise the Nigerian workforce by putting fear in their minds.”
CAN also commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives and prayed for speedy recovery for those injured in the attack.
He said CAN will continue support leaders with prayers to ensure that the situation is put under control. “ours is to take this petition to God, we cannot carry guns and bombs to fight this battle but through prayers we shall win this battle” He added.
